of them citing boston pd. others citing federal sources. our own pete williams has taken a break from us to work the phones himself, and is now ready to speak us to in our washington bureau. pete, what do you know and what can we say? >> what we've been told by several source says there is no arrest. then it begins to break down from there, about whether -- let's start at the other end. what do they know? they believe they have video that shows what they were looking for. a person setting down a black nylon bag at the scene of one of the bombings and walking away. now as we go toward the other end of that, we have two conflicting source is on whether, you know, they see that person, they look at the face. do they know who it is or not? someone says yes, they are trying to find him. other sources say no, they are trying to figure out who it is. which is it, i don't know. i will say throughout this, from the beginning of this, this has been the hall mark of this story. that information that is pointing in totally different direction says coming from normally very dependable sources and you

of calls coming in. we're told by pete williams that the fbi is receiving calls of suspected matchups with the faces here. >> they are getting some names and now what they are trying to do is run those names through data is bas and s databases and there is no name to match the suspects. but they are operating those lines. they have task force teams obviously ready to run out and follow any leads as they come in. some names are being offered from the calls and e-mails that are coming in but as of now there is no certain match and they are, again, using all their computers and technology to try to, as the names come in, to try to find them and find out which tips are more credible than the others. >> i'm wondering, jonathan, if you were in that crowd and survived and you're watching right now, does the human memory work that way that you would recognize these two guys walking along dressed as they were? >> i don't know. looking over the videotapes of that crowd, people were coming, going, celebratory, people watching the race, looking out on to the marathoners finishing up looking for t

correspondent pete williams. pete, i'd like to go to you first, given what the president just said coming out and saying it is an act of terror does not come as much of a surprise, given the contours of this. but still something worth remarking on in terms of how the white house is handling this event. >> perhaps so. but this is a case of you know, do as i say, not as i do. or perhaps actions speak louder than words, is what i meant. the very fact that it was announced last night that the fbi was taking the lead in this investigation answered the question. because the fbi has jurisdiction in a case like this only if it's considered an act of terrorism. we crossed that bridge last night. with the words were used or not. in terms of the investigation, let's just clear up a couple of points that were confusing overnight. just two devices, there was a suggestion there were others because so many packages had to be destroyed. there was mixed information about whether any of them campaigned explosives, they did not. sports are starting to learn more about the kproe significance of the bomb. how it

straight to nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams, in washington. pete, there's been a lot of back and forth this afternoon. straighten it out for us. what have you heard about a potential person of interest and where are we in this investigation? >> well, what we're told is that the pictures have been quite valuable. that they've found from a surveillance camera on a building -- and this makes sense if you think about the building surveillance camera being up high so that it can look down on the crowd and get a sort of bird's eye view. that they think that they see a picture of exactly what they're looking for. someone setting down a backpack or a duffel bag and then walking away. that's the kind of picture they're looking for. they have seen a face on that picture, we're told. they're now trying to figure out who that person is, find them and question them. that's where it stands right now. we're told they don't know who that person is, but it's a rapidly moving investigation. i'm sure everyone would like to have this whole thing wrapped up by the time the president gets there to

. pete williams is nbc's justice correspondent. michael leiter is former direction of the national counterterrorism center. pete, this morning we've heard a lot about this individual who was questioned overnight and then his home was searched. we heard michael isikoff mention that it's actually two saudis that have been investigated, but this doesn't appear to be -- >> they were the two that were in his apartment. right. >> there doesn't appear to be much to this, right? spl well, it's too soon to know. there have been some conflicting accounts about what he was doing right before and right after the bombing. he was seen running from the scene. well, of course a lot of people were. but he had severe burns. apparently his clothing was on fire. and that means that he was obviously standing very close to one of the devices. so that makes him suspicious in the minds of some people. he's been questioned. one official told me this morning -- i said could it turn out that he was just an innocent bystander and the official said, yes, it could. but nonetheless, just to show how thorough thi

at the fragments left from the pieces of a pressure cooker. nbc news' pete williams points out that one of the pressure cooker lids ended up on the roof of a nearby building because the force of the explosion was so great. this photo shows bbs and a nail believed to be part of the shrapnel in one of the bombs along what could be the zipper from one of those black backpacks or nylon bags authorities have mentioned. investigators know the type of batteries use and michael isikoff reports they were in a battery pack made by a company in california used to power toy cars and often for sale in hobby shops. officials have opened up more of the area around the crime scene, focusing their investigation primarily on those two explosion points and the stretch of boylston street. i'm joined now by massachusetts governor deval patrick. thank you for joining me. >> thank you, lawrence. >> i'd like you to tell the story about how you found out about these explosions. i heard you explain this on a local interview. >> i had been out at the finish line crowning the men's and women's winners earlier in t

, a federal -- a lot of other networks are doing this. luckily we have pete william here to guard the truth and make sure we get it right. but other networks without pointing to anybody, they have had the problem, federal officials, i'm looking through all the clips. maybe just one, maybe a very busy federal official has been running around today telling news people and major networks and wire services, hey, look, they made an arrest. how did that happen, clint? who is this person that says i know they did. hard fact. >> number one, yeah, it shouldn't have happened. we don't know who it was. but, look, when you get that many agencies involved, somebody's looking to make points. unfortunately, the points they make could compromise an investigation. but when you have upwards of 60 different agencies involved in a case like this, loose lips can sink a case. >> you think it's possible there has been someone as you say in pocket or what's the -- do you think this person has been narrowed down to? do they have the person in a case or they have them in some sort of contained circumstance they can'
